Longtime readers know that I have been a voting member of the Critics Choice Association for more than a decade. In fact, I usually attend the ceremony in person. This year, due to the pandemic, the show will be handled like most major events, with few people in attendance and most celebrities attending virtually. But don’t worry. I am confident that it will be as entertaining as ever. In fact, there will be something particularly memorable about a distanced awards show. Would it really seem like 2021 if things were handled normally? Taye Diggs is hosting, and the president of our association — Joey Berlin — pointed out in a note I received today that — unlike the Hollywood Foreign Press Association — our membership is remarkably diverse both in terms of geography and demographics. That means a really interesting slate of nominees. We also pride ourselves on strong artistic choices. So, tune in Sunday and give the show a watch. You may find that you like it better than the Golden Globes. Presenters include: Kevin Bacon, Angela Bassett, Mayim Bialik, Phoebe Dynevor, Morgan Freeman, Gal Gadot, Jim Gaffigan, Chris Hemsworth, Jameela Jamil, Eva Longoria, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Jared Padalecki, Kyra Sedgwick, Yara Shahidi, Courtney B. Vance, John David Washington, and Catherine Zeta-Jones. The show airs Sunday, March 7, on the CW at 7 p.m. (6 central).
